Swedish dealer network Holmgrens Bil drops Saab

The Swedish dealer network Holmgrens Bil AB today announced that they have terminated the dealer contract with Saab. The dealer network is present on nine different places in southern Sweden and have been selling Saabs for 20 years. It is unclear if all these locations were Saab dealer. The group will however still offer to service Saab cars.

Sad news but not very surprising given that the CEO of Holmgrens, as reported here on Life with Saab, told SvD a few days ago that their focus was totally off Saab at the present. Also I do not appreciate what Holmgren writes in the press release about the situation for Saab recently. I would have expected more dignity and respect from a company that claims to be a professional business.
